Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hartke "For 29 years I have provided compassionate and up to date care for women in southeastern Wisconsin. I listen to my patients, answer your questions and provide current treatment options to assist you in making informed healthcare decisions. As your obstetrician, whether you hope to have a natural birth or desire epidural anesthesia, my goal for you is a healthy pregnancy and wonderful birthing experience. Vaginal birth after cesarean is an option. While I use conservative treatment when  possible, I have had 33 years of experience in gynecologic surgery.  I encourage education, screening, healthy nutrition and fitness to help patients achieve wellness. I look forward to meeting you!"

Patient Comments (3)
in Menomonee Falls, WI |
Just had my first appointment with Dr. Hartke. I've never had a doctor take so much time to discuss my health history and answer my questions. She is professional, kind, and thorough.

Dr. Hartke is truly amazing in everyway. I chose her as my OBGYN 3 years ago after a failed ablation through an Aurora Doc. She had no choice but to perform a hysterectomy. It was the best decision I made ! She gave me a call the night before my surgery to comfort me, and ask any last minute questions. That's a nice touch, and gains you a restful night of sleep. The surgery was painless, and I have only 3 tiny scars from the laser incisions . Thank you Doctor, you are the best :)

I have been seeing Dr. Hartke for many years and I am grateful that there is an opportunity for me to share a review. She is professional and kind, caring and sincere. She is a brilliant woman with many years of experience who consistently stays informed about women's health care and well-being. She has the patient's best interests in mind, listens attentively and asks the right questions. She takes her time with me. Never hurried; always thorough. Kathy Hartke is someone I call dr and friend.
